Adding email addresses manually

Your first option is to invite your contacts by manually typing names and email addresses.

This option is only recommendable when you need to invite just a few addresses and when you do not need to add any properties to your responses.

In fact, by adding an email address manually you do not have the option to link the response to a specific field, such as a department, a recruiter and so on.

If you still need to invite manually but would like your responses to be linked to properties so you can filter your dashboards, we recommend using the .csv upload option. See guide here.

How to add email addresses manually

  • From your Survey overview, open the dropdown menu for the survey you'd like to send out and select Invite new respondents.
  • A screen with 3 different invite options appears and here you can choose who you want to invite and how you want to do that. Click on Add manually
  • Type first name, last name, and email address of the contacts you want to invite.
  • Finally, click on 'Compose' once you're done

After typing your email addresses and clicking Compose, Starred will redirect you to the invitation text composer where you can review your invitation text, select the right template to send and adjust other settings such as the sender and the reminder.
